If you have fine hair

The key to fighting frizz when it comes to fine hair: weightless products that won’t weigh down strands. Before heat-styling—whether it’s using a blowdryer or straightener—Eva Reed, Pro Regional Educator for amika, likes to apply a heat-activated, lightweight mist to combat frizz all day and night. Try: amika The Shield Style Extending Spray, John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Spray, or Redken Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist. These are the style rules for people with fine and thin hair.
If you have thin hair

Struggling with thin or limp strands? Go for volume. To give hair a boost while eliminating frizz, Reed suggests spritzing a product like amika Bombshell Blowout Spray on the roots when hair is wet, and then smoothing a leave-in cream like Reverie Milk Anti-Frizz Leave-In Nourishing Treatment from the mid shaft to the ends. Next, blow-dry on a low setting or let your strands air dry. Try these awesome, no-heat hairstyles.
If you have coarse hair

For coarse strands, hairstylist and founder of Fatboy, Tyson Kennedy recommends mixing Fatboy Perfect Putty with a couple of drops of Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil and applying it from roots to ends. “Comb through the hair and then run your hands thorough to add separation. If you have longer hair, you can twist to create beachy waves in the front.” This is the one product you need for perfect beach waves.
